"There's no cure for this"....couldn't it be colon cancer, cervical cancer, etc? There's not cure for those either.

Yes, cancers are definitely curable (not 100% of the time, of course, but definitely curable). The common cold is not -- only can treat the symptoms until it runs its course.

Since alliteration has to do with how a word sounds not the letter it starts with, some of the answers are actually alliteration for phrases starting with "ch."

but the title of the quiz is "alliteration by letter c" not "alliteration by the a hard c sound"

Alliteration doesn't have to sound the same, see definition below. al·lit·er·a·tion əˌlitəˈrāSHən noun 1. the occurrence of the same LETTER OR sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words.

Although Charlie Chaplin still fits the category, I would say that climate change does not. They begin with the same letter, true, but they are not actually alliterative.

Charlie Chaplin would likely argue that Hitler had a Chaplin mustache as he popularized the toothbrush mustache first (although Chaplin was born only four days earlier than Hitler, so I'm not sure who actually HAD it first).

I believe Hitler began wearing that thing in the middle of WWI when his big honking cookie duster (my terminology) nearly killed him by preventing a useful seal on his gas mask during a (chlorine?) gas attack on his trench. I don't remember my source on that though.

Yes, it was actually Hitler who adopted the Charlie Chaplin mustache, as he was a big fan of the little tramp character. It's just unfortunate that one of Chaplin's most famous attributes will forever be called a "Hitler mustache".

Where this quiz is asking for alliteration, both words should be required--even if it is a name. Merely typing Columbus isn't putting an answer that is alliteration. I understand that Columbus infers Christopher, but the quiz should require complete answers when the complete answer is the only way it fulfills the requirement.

Not sure we have Cap'n Crunch in Britain, and where the hell do Cargo Cults exist. That's totally new to me. The whole idea behind it seems nonsensical.

cargo cults are in some way out islands, south pacific i think, dating from when the US came and handed out all the goodies... after the war, the locals laid out runways so the generosity would resume... one lot even worship prince philip, who visited one island and gave out gifts (they are still waiting for his return)

They're basically religions that have been set up on the basis that when Western people came to the islands they were brought in food and other supplies by plane without ever seeming to do any recognisable work. People on the islands assumed that in order for more planes to arrive they had to do what the Westerners were doing, and the main thing they noticed them doing with obvious consequence was building runways for the planes to land on. So they built runways for more planes to come and land on, but of course none came. Lots of them are still going today. Other examples of ideas that seem nonsensical (and are if you understand what is going on, but seem intuitively right if you don't) are tribes that believe that batteries are sacred because they make machines work (seemingly by magic). One tribe in particular sometimes tattoos themselves with battery acid for this reason. The beliefs are pretty bizarre, though I would argue that the same can be said of most Western religions.

Could you also accept fairy floss for the spun sugar question. It is what we call it here in Australia, and according to Wikipedia it's original name, as introduced at the World's fair in the 1900s. It is also alliterative. Thanks

Cash crops don't have to be exported. They are anything sold for commercial use rather than personal use by the grower. Around here if someone says "cash crop" they are referring to illegal marijuana.

Coco Chanel is not alliterative. Perhaps when creating a quiz, one should always remove one item before posting. :-)
